In 1934, the ebullient Victor Bergeron built a cozy saloon in Oakland, California naming it Hinky Dink’s after the well-known World War I song “Hinky Dinky Parlay Vous.” After returning from his travels to Cuba and Hawaii, in 1937 Vic “The Trader” transformed Hinky Dink’s from a saloon into Trader Vic’s, a tropical retreat bedecked with various artifacts and trappings, serving simmering plates of Island-style cuisine and becoming America’s first fusion restaurant concept.

Escape to Trader Vic’s for Polynesian cuisine, tropical cocktails and an unforgettable ambiance featuring traditional tikis, giant blowfish and palm-thatched ceilings. Trader Vic’s Atlanta, located on the lower level of the Hilton Atlanta, brings the Pacific Islands to the city. Come celebrate the history of Trader Vic’s in the oldest franchise located in the United States.

“Apparently I was hugging strangers at Trader Vic’s last night. There's photographic evidence. I know none of them.”
